The Minnesota Vikings are 4-5 after beating the Chargers in Los Angeles Sunday 27-20.  Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan says the NFC is very competitive for the last 2 playoff spots.

New Orleans at 5-4 is holding the 2nd wildcard spot with Carolina at 5-5 holding the 3rd and last wildcard spot in the NFC.  The Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, and San Francisco 49ers are 4-5.

Even though the Vikings and 49ers are currently on the outside looking in for the last 2 playoff spots Jim Souhan feels the Vikings and 49ers will overtake New Orleans and Carolina to snag the last 2 spots.  Other teams in contention include the Philadelphia Eagles at 4-6.
